If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; …turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I have chosen/sanctified/hallowed this house,.. to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, [and] wilt keep my statutes and my judgments: Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised/covenanted to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne/ruler of Israel. [But] if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments [and] my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them: Then will I pluck up/cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed/sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight;

Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant. Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father's sake: [but] I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.
